"outfront" tonight, desperate for answers. investigators spent the day at the home of 20-year-old adam lan lanza, sweeping the house for evidence of a motive. there are also new details tonight about nancy lanza's where abouts in the days before the shooting. deborah fayerick is live outside the home tonight. what has happened there tonight and today? >> it's rather remarkable because the major crime squad has been here all day and as we push into the house, lights are on in the top and bottom floor. now, they brought back the emotional crime lab and they're processing this crime scene. investigators have not retrieved any information from the damaged computer, the one that gunman is alleged to have smashed into pieces. the hard drive so damaged the fbi is having a difficult time getting any data. so what investigators are doing now, about half a dozen of them in the house. they're going through all documents, files, medicine c cabine cabinets. earlier today, we did see them bring ou
on to headquarters here in washington and they actually foreshadowed the very way the four americans would die in coordinated assault by islamists, martha. martha: so disturbing. catherine, thank you very much. >> reporter: you're welcome. bill: one of the senators at the heart of all this is republican john barrasso. he is live a few moments from now to tell us three key questions he says the obama administration has to answer now more than three months after the attack. the senator coming up in a matter of moments. martha: in connecticut this morning it is another somber day of remembrance. there will be six wakes and five funerals that are scheduled for today for some of the 26 children and adults who were killed last friday at sandy hook elementary. look at these images. all the little angels set up around that town. today 6-year-old catherine hubbard, teacher anne-mariery murphy. teacher lauren russo. 6-year-old benjamin wheeler, 6-year-old allison wyatt will be laid to rest today. more on services ahead. others are scheduled for friday and saturday as this woeful week goes on. bill: it c
of or at least making smoking pot legal in colorado as well as the state of washington. so, is that a sign that perhaps our future use of pot is actually becoming more accepted? >> well, the ones that are taking the brunt of this blow and are being devastated are our teens. this is a very serious epidemic that the obama administration cannot ignore. when you have numbers coming out that tell us we have over 100,000 teens that are going into treatment per year for marijuana treatment and we have an 80% increase, that's new users from 2008, to 2012, that's new users from 12 to 17, that's a serious epidemic, so, yes, we're in serious, serious trouble when it comes to our teens and mental capacity. >> kelly: if we make this an acceptable practice in all of our states, we're causing harm, as you say to our children and it may hamper their educational development and development as adults? >> well, we have great studies that tell us once they start smoking marijuana their iq drops significantly. their sports activities decline, their mathematical skills decline. and in fact, here is something t

that pays the price for only being 98% loyal. the nra speaks out tomorrow in washington. >>> in connecticut, tomorrow it's going to mean an official statewide area of mourning. >>> jesse lewis couldn't wait to get to school that friday. he was excited for the holidays and his dad was going to join him in the class that afternoon to make begin injury bread houses. he was 6 years old. smart, passionate beyond his years, his dad thought jesse could concur the world. he died trying to lead others to safety after hearing gunshots in the hallway. that's how he led his life, his parents say, fearless, courage, and strength. jesse loves animals and was learning to ride horses. his favorite toy was a little soldier. almost every night of his life, jesse slept in his mother's arms. his family writes, the picture that remains etched in our souls is his in his boots, ripped jeans and t-shirt, chomping through the pasture on his way from one adventure to another. catherine hubbard was known for the bright red hair and her smile. she, too, was 6 years old. every single christmas she asked santa to bring
of this segment. i would like to it change but i'm not very hopeful given what is happening in washington. a lot of clown action down there. there was some good news on housing. sales of existing home hit a high, the best we've seen in three years in november. >>> now our fourth story "outfront." we have news. a scram when for votes on the hill. the house was expected to vote actually right now. we were expecting to have breaking news that vote was coming in. it would be on speaker john boehner's plan to allow tax to go up on people who make over $1 million a year. but now that vote is in danger because it appears republicans are struggling to find the votes they need. the votes that they thought they had in the can to pass the bill. dana bash is our senior congressional correspondent. how did this unravel? how significant is this development that the speaker thought he had the votes and he doesn't seem to. >> reporter: it is very significant. if you can see over my shoulder, that is house speaker's office. a few moments ago, the house majority leader and other members of the leadership race in
civil liberties union? >> a here in washington has been a major impediment and a lot of people believe that nobody should be treated involuntarily. well, that flies in the face of the fact that we treat people with active tuberculosis involuntarily when they won't take medicine. we also restrict people who have alzheimer's disease and don't know they're sick. so, we do this for other conditions, but we have a lot of trouble thinking through this clearly for people with severe mental illness. >> paul: you mentioned in your op-ed for us, the number of activity psychiatric beds has declined from more than half a million to fewer than 50,000. i guess this is part of that movement you're describing against incarcerating the mentally ill, but you're saying that that decline in those beds has endangered the american public? >> it has, because if you try to get somebody who needs hospitalization into a hospital today, it's virtually impossible. as one of my colleagues says, it's easier to get somebody into harvard than it is a mental hospital. we have only one out of the 20 beds that we had 50
going over the fisical cliff? there is still no deal. steve joins us from washington with the latest on thes. >> hi, uma, the fiscal cliff may be looming. but both sides are pulting the dial on hold. no deal for the tooks . at times it appeared congress was made but not the case this weekend. house speaker john boehner said he is hopeful, but none theless of as the presidentov dubbinging the fiscal issue in the stapped off. boehner delivered the gop. >> the president has offedy will not do anything to solvelet speppeding problem and begins to the crippling debt. he wants more spending and tax hikes and that will hurt our economy . he refuses to challenge the members of his family to deal with entitlementriform and the big issues that are facing our nation. president obama said a deal could be reached but that appears unlikely. he took off for hawaii and landed with his family for a shorter than usual christmas break. he said he is it a hopeless optmist. he is scaling back and pushing for a tax cut for the middle class and calling for compromise. it can only pass from democrats and re
libya up to the state department here in washington that this consulate could notwithstand a coordinated attack from terrorists. fox news was first to report on a emergency meeting in benghazi in august which people on the ground essentially predicted the way would die a month later. one senator said this morning that despite these warnings no action was taken. >> you were aware of the security risk there. we read the cables. you were fully aware. you either sent people there with security or you don't send them there. i don't understand why you didn't send a notification up with the cables coming in, with concerns about security, why didn't you do just you did with the arb, seeking additional fund? i don't understand? >> reporter: the response from the state department witnesses was really an understatement, that they should have done a better job and connecting the dots. they emphasized to the senator this morning they're taking the bull by the horns in this report and that they have taken these 29 recommendations. they have fully adopted them and then they divided those recommendation
